There is a way to affirm ethnocentric human nature while also saving America as a democratic republic
Fake News? What About Fake Human Nature? Americans have been rather easily brainwashed by fake news, but we have been more seriously brainwashed by fake human nature. Human nature is susceptible to short-term instant gratification and this susceptibility has now led to the permanent loss of America as we have known it.
Real human nature, not fake human nature, remains as it has always been, kin-centered, gender defined, age-graded, heterosexual marriage-making, hierarchical, ethnocentric, even xenophobic, and religious-making, among other things, with group-selection as the primary unit of successful selection, followed by individual selection.
It will be concluded by some that democracy cannot save real human nature or save America and we will have again the "totalitarian temptation" to "get things done" non-democratically, but that will be playing to that human susceptibility to short-term instant gratification and it will be the wrong way to go.
Empires promoting fake news and fake human nature fall and are usually replaced by and an ethnopluralism of ethnostates more in line with real human nature. The good news is that there is a way to save America as a democratic republic and affirm real human nature by applying the constitutional separation of powers and states to an ethnopluralism of ethnostates. This may require a few amendments to the Constitution, but it will be the natural conservative way to change, evolve, and save ourselves while saving America.
